Everyday carry pocket knives are as much a personal fashion accessory as a utilitarian tool, and Deejo is here to prove it. 

The French company is bringing their eye-catching bespoke knives to the United States for the first time through a slick online portal.

Start by selecting a 15-gram, 27-gram or 37-gram weight and a mirror, grey or black titanium finish for the four-inch stainless steel blade.

Building the handle offers further opportunities for customization. Choose between five different species of exotic woods, eight different colors of plastic, or a geometric carbon fiber pattern. A "Naked" construction that continues the finish of the blade is also available for those seeking a clean, simple aesthetic.

The "Tattoo" design element fulfills Deejo's promise of unparalleled personalization. Over 75 different patterns can be engraved into the foldable blade, from a pinup girl to a menacing calavera-style skull..

Founder Luc Foin told Maxim more about Deejo's mission:   

"No one needs a wristwatch when the time is on your phone screen, but people wear a watch because it says something about them and their lifestyle," Foin said. 

"Deejo is the same—an accessory that allows you to enjoy the ease of a pocket knife with the style that comes with your own personal Deejo."

And if you're into custom blades, the prices are dirt cheap--ranging from $29 to $80 depending on the options chosen.
